Steer, thanks for the pics. I had a real tough time convincing wife that the curvy things are cars, and not competition!!

Nice to know that others too are having identical problems!!

Yes, GM plans to launch a Accord rival with a Cadillac batch.

The GM chap at the Cadillac CTS display said that it would be a C-Class rival at the same pricepoint.

You want an A6? Hey! I want one too. I have a cousin in N. England with a 4.2litre.

I only now had the opportunity to browse this thread properly, and (Thanks, BSNL Fraudband!) still waiting for some of the excellent pics to load.

Thumbs up: Fiat Linea (among the cars I might just possibly be able to afford) and Fiat 500 (I should be able to afford if they don't price it as a collectors' item). AMW Pug, if I ever needed a mini truck. Looks sweet!

Thumbs sideways: Honda. I'm a bit of a Honda fan... but just looks like too much glass for the Chennai sun.

Thumbs down: VW 'up'. Always been a VW fan, but not this time: revolting looking thing, everything is out of proportion. And no, I don't like the wheels: OTT and look too big for the car.

Big Thumbs down to all those car designers who think the front end should look like a face. It should only be allowed if they make the rear end look like a backside. Probably Renault will be the first to actually do that

Hello Steeroid,

Very nice work. Thank you very much for your efforts. It was like a virtual tour of the Auto Expo.

Fiat's display looks very good and it seems that Tata + Fiat 's models are the only ones, which are going to launched very soon.
